NSF invites proposals for CMOS+X technology demonstrations
April 27, 2022
The NSF recognizes the opportunity to drive system-level performance improvements in computing and communications by integrating CMOS semiconductor chips with emerging technologies.
The promise of these emerging technologies has not been fully realized, in part because of barriers to collaboration between materials scientists who investigate novel materials and heterostructures, device researchers who model device characteristics, and computer system designers who create new circuits and architectures through simulation. Additionally, lack of access to fabrication facilities also poses a problem of co-integration of CMOS with emerging (X) technologies.
NSF invites proposals for CMOS+X technology demonstrations from teams bringing together device researchers and computer system designers.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2022 budget of $8.8 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
